I am a professional, freelance makeup and F/X artist for the film, television, live event and print industry with over 20 years of experience.

Past and current celebrity clients include: James Earl Jones, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bill Paxton, Carlos Santana, Jeff Bridges, Carrot Top, Michael Jordan, Kirsten Vangsness, Chris Mulky, Phil Mickelson, Cybil Sheppard, James Caan, Tony Sirico, Kristy McNichol, Joanna Kerns, Ben Lyons, The Rock , Steve Garvey, Robert Wagner, Suzanne Somers and Jesse Ventura.

Some of my film credits include: Terminator, Aliens, Invaders from Mars, You Can't Hurry Love and most recently, the Ron Howard short film, When You Find Me, which was filmed entirely on a prototype of Canon's new C300 and directed by Bryce Dallas-Howard.

I have crewed countless television shows, national and local commercials, news media spots, sport shows, webseries and print advertising for NBC, HBO, ESPN, QVC, CBS, CNN, the Food Network, Telemundo, Mercedes-Benz and AFLAC to name just a few.

I have also built a large corporate client base that includes Microsoft, Qualcomm, Jenny Craig, Cisco Systems, Capitol Records, Tupperware, Hewlett-Packard, Mary Kay Cosmetics, X-Box and 24-Hour Fitness.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I began my career at the age of 18 after attending Joe Blasco and The Institute of Studio Makeup. I specialize in HD makeup for all types of freelance media and with my skills as an artist I am fortunate to have an eclectic range of work on a daily basis.

My attention to detail, preparedness, professional habits, positive attitude and professional skills, continue to help me build a successful career and I currently own Epic Makeup, which provides teams of makeup and hair artists to larger productions.

I am available for work in Los Angeles, San Diego, Orange County and surrounding areas, as well as out-of-state and internationally. Looking forward to working with you! For a more detailed list please view my resume.
